Former Vancouver Canucks forward Manny Malhotra will continue his hockey career in the American Hockey League with the Charlotte Checkers.

The club announced on Wednesday that Malhotra signed a 25-game professional tryout contract.

The 33-year-old suffered a serious eye injury when struck by a puck during a game versus Colorado in March of 2011.  He returned to the Canucks lineup last season, but was placed on season-ending injured reserve by the club after going pointless in nine games.

At that time, Canucks general manager Mike Gillis said that he believed that Malhotra was at times “extremely vulnerable” on the ice because he couldn't see well enough.
